29 Jun 2009 2:31 AM

Opposition Leader MALCOLM TURNBULL has met federal police investigating a fake email central to the OzCar affair .. admitting it's been a tough week for the Liberals .. but says the party remains united.

Mr TURNBULL denies any involvement in the creation of the email .. but acknowledges he'll need to be more cautious in the future .. saying all sides learn from episodes like this.

Last week the government repeatedly called for Mr TURNBULL's resignation .. while there was discussion within his own ranks about his handling of the affair.

There have also been media reports about his ties to Treasury official GODWIN GRECH .. with speculation the official leaked information from the department.
